Default UPDATE on the Rear Seat Belts

i had read somewhere in the forums that in some lineas the Rear Seat belts do not fit properly into the buckles provided for them. I tested the Rear Seat Belts myself on sunday and was shocked when i found the Rear Right belt doesnt clip into the Buckle no 1 provided.

then checked out the same seat belt with buckle 2 which is in the centre of the bench and Lo it enters there and stays locked! checked the Rear left seatbelt with Buckle no 3 and it too fits properly. the Buckle No 1 belongs to the waist belt (which comes up from below the bench seat) which has a slightly shorter locking mechanism than the regular two seat belts. this belt goes into Buckle No 1

Conclusion: no problems with the rear Seat belts. Calling all Owners of Linea to Do this check!

Wonderful Thread Sunilrj.

I could not stop myself by reading all the 8 pages so far. This thread is very informative

I must say you are furnishing the Emotion pk of FIAT with you emotions.

I am pretty much intrested in the pressue water cleaner you purchased for washing. Please share how effective it is and how does it operates.

the pressure washer is very effective that you will stop visiting the service station for a wash and do the wash yourself, thus losing a few calories too!! it operates on electricity and a normal tap water connection which is connected to the inlet of the pressure washer and the water jets out from the outlet with the same force as it would in a service station!

the video and information are available here --->> HYM-VA-70 HIGH PRESSURE WASHER / CLEANER

hi Vinay! i always maintain the beauty well :-) 4 hrs of mere washing and cleaning once a week!

i used to have a Nikon D40X which got damaged when i was doing a story for times of India on rock climbing. these pictures are taken from a simple Sony DSC S-700 camera. yes a stable hand, quick fingers and a creative mind are necessary for beautiful pictures.

Visit Karllson and meet sajith there. he will give you the ideas. i never even saw the colour of the leather when i ordered the seats. i believe in the jargon 'leave the decsion and design to the skill of the specialist in that field'

Linea is the most beautiful car under 10L, no car can even be considered for a comparison with her.She looks like an evergreen beauty.
We Love you Fiat, you definitely deserve a better treatment in India..
